Flash #183

Flash #183 (On Sale: September 5, 1968) has a cover by Ross Andru and Mike Esposito.

"The Flash's Dead Ringer" is by Frank Robbins, Ross Andru and Mike Esposito. Before the Flash is scheduled to speak at a police symposium in Central City, he learns about a potential assassination attempt. To fool the assassins he travels to Borderville and lets the crooks believe that he is an out of work actor doubling for Barry Allen. Then Iris, disguised as Barry, leads the crooks astray. The deception works, and the crooks call off the assassination attempt.

When Flash then trails one of the crooks, he is caught and frozen solid by an instant icer. With the Flash unable to stop them, the crooks then proceed with a large scale robbery.
